It’s always great to have something for them to do that gets them away from their devices for a while.
We’ve found that the best board games for teens run the gamut from strategy to silliness.
Some of these games combine expert level skill with juvenile level jokes, which we’ve found to be a perfect mix!
We love playing these board games with our teens. Our teens love playing these board games with their friends.
And sometimes, albeit rarely, they’re cool with us playing the games with them AND their friends.
In addition to getting them away from screens, playing board games together as a family helps us stay connected.
It may seem like a small thing, but having a game night a couple times a month gets us all in the same room, talking to one another.
It’s these smaller experiences that we use to build a stronger relationship with our teens and keep our family close.
For this list we not only included our family favorite board games, we surveyed our friends and their kids to find out what teen board games they love to play!
Some of the are new favorites and some are classics, but they all are super popular with our teens!
I’m also including links to where you can purchase these games.
BONUS: This list includes some easy DIY games and some completely free games!!!! That’s a huge plus in my book!

Catan has been extremely popular with teens for years.
From the makers of the game:
"Your adventurous settlers seek to tame the remote but rich isle of Catan. Start by revealing Catan’s many harbors and regions: Pastures, fields, mountains, hills, forests, and desert. The random mix creates a different board virtually every game."
This game is for serious players, but can still be hours of fun!
Hi! I’m Louise. I’m a wife, a mom, a crafter, a Disney fan, and a french fry connoisseur. I’m the daughter of a novelist and an mechanical engineer, so creativity, writing, and problem solving are ingrained in my DNA.
While most days I may look like I know what I’m doing, the older I get the more I discover that nobody actually has it all together. We all need a little help and advice now and again, and I love sharing my insights here at Chaotically Yours.
